I Turned 30 and Never Wrote About it.

Hey Guys,

I'm 30. I have come to grips with it and have this horrible feeling that the older I get to worse I become at things, not a good sign since I have possible 50 more years to live. So the way I see it from age 60-80 I won't be able to do anything successfully. Awesome.

For my 30th, Ray and I went over to Orange County and hung with a couple of our friends, Shaun and Melisa. Shaun turned 30 a few days after I did so we went to drown our sorrows in Ruby's cheeseburgers and California Strawberries (they are the best strawberries I have ever had, seriously I at about 14 lbs of them). Sounds lame, but we had a great time.

While we were out there Ray and I picked up a new laptop, ours has been jacked for months so we saved up and got a new Mac. She's cherry.

Also while we were out there I got my b-day present, an '08 Gt Peace 29er Single Speed.



Greg, the camp director, and I were talking about riding the Whiskey Off Road MTB race (its a local race of 15, 25 or 50 miles) next year on single speeds. So since our talk I have been looking for a used on that I could get cheap and that's what we did. I found her on Craigslist in OC and brought her home. She's tough on our trails with the one gear and rigid front end (no suspension), but a fun bike to ride.

I've had the chance to ride a lot over the past several weeks and it feels good to get in some sort of cycling shape where I can now go for a ride and actually enjoy it.

Hope everyone is doing well. Peace out.

Chris

Sounds like a fun 30th! I forget that I'm 30 all the time until people ask my age and then I feel REALLY old! haha! Cool new bike... although I might go crazy with a single speed but seems like a fun challenge :) Cool :)
